with a little bit, as his position has been changing just in the past couple of weeks. on medicare, the republicans had been ahead or even even with the democrats not long ago. but today president obama leads on medicare by 12 points. leads on medicare by even more than he's ahead on health care in general. it's also interesting that the president's middle east numbers, specifically, is ten points higher than his advantage over mr. romney on the broad issue of foreign policy. and then we get into some real contested ground. the president is favored on the issue of taxes, but on the generic question of who would be better trusted to handle the economy, mr. romney leads by three. on the deficit, mr. romney leads by nine. on all of these issues, that's the one on which he has the strongest trust from voters as compared with president obama. and that confidence in mr. romney on the deficit turns up not just in the nbc/"wall street journal" poll, but in a lot of national polls. even though he hasn't given a lot of details as to how he would handle the deficit as an issue. the bottom lin

% number. that's something that the obama campaign has spent over $3 million advertising about over the last two weeks. no mention of that. no mention of bain capital. no mention of the tax returns. no mention of outsourcing. and so it seems to me that the president is going to have to look for opportunities, which by the way i think mitt romney handed him last night, but he just didn't seem to hear them. >> he wasn't either prepared or didn't want to get into that kind of debate. >> right. >> so what did romney do last night that we probably haven't seen before? >> well, i think he managed to do a couple of things really well. and i want to play this one bite for you then we can talk about it. >> i just don't know how the president could have come into office facing 23 million people out of work, rising unemployment, an economic crisis at the kitchen table and spend his energy and passion for two years fighting for obama care instead of fighting for jobs for the american people. it has killed jobs. >> the big thing he did is that he seemed to be able to relate almost every answer t

a commanding performance. most americans believe he trounced president obama in their first showdown. more on that in a moment. first, some of the reactions. even as the dust was settling. >> a week ago, people were saying this was over. we've got a horse race. mitt romney, his performance was head and shoulders above anything we've ever seen him do before. >> mitt romney rose to the moment tonight. in a way, frankly, that surprised me. >> it looked like romney wanted to be there and president obama didn't want to be there. >> dan lothian is in denver. morning, dan. mr. obama can't be feeling very good this morning. >> reporter: good morning. well, look, as you just played out in those sound bites, it was a big night for governor romney. some have suggested it was a make or break debate for him. he certainly showed up to fight. and voters agree he got the win in a cnn or flash poll, 67% of the voters said he won the debate. 25% saying president obama won. how did he do it? he challenged the president, never backed down even as the president appeared not to want to push back until the secon
lehrer is a real guy. i know one person who is voting for barack obama. at least there's one, his name is jim lehrer. >> let's move on. kanye west and kim kardashian. apparently kim kardashian made a comment this week she has never been more in love than she is with kanye. she is still married to someone whose name isn't kanye. >> she is in it love with being in love. every guy is the one. she goes from one to the other and it's always wedding bells and can't wait to spend the rest of my life with him until she doesn't want to spend the rest of her life with him. >> she said she can't see herself with anyone else. i have news for you, kim, we can. >> and, also, we have. >> unfortunately, we're out of time. we can't talk about the hulk hogan sex tape. thank goodness. >> nobody is more upset than this guy. >> i know you wanted to go there, didn't you. >> one man, one woman. >> chuck and erica, we thank you oh, so much for another wonderful installment of "the week in buzz." >>> lester got a chance to sit down with the cast of the "princess bride" as it celebrates its 25th anniversary. go
't really relevant at the moment. this week was all about debates and unemployment. it just didn't seem to fit in. yeah, it got out there. >> amy holmes, has obama's speech received moderate coverage at the time and this time around covered as a media story and disappeared. did this story fizzle? >> i think it did and it's unfortunate. it fizzled because it was covered as a race war story or a media story instead of a promise story that senator obama is promising better treatment because of disparate treatment. historically has that come to pass. he's made some very bold claims as you pointed out that new orleans got less favorable treatment than new york. it turns out some fact-checkers said that wasn't true. but meanwhile he's been president for four years whach has he done to wreckty file that situation? has he worked with governor jindal? how did this all play out and unfortunately the media is not asking those questions. >> i talked to tucker carlson of "newsweek" this week. he said some of the reaction in the press was disgust and reflects t reflects a larger problem in the press,

into the final weeks of the campaign. in the postgraduate realm, 57% are supporting barack obama. some colleges are evenly divided. jonesboro, arkansas, good morning. caller: i have a lot of friends that actually voted for president obama in the last election. a lot of them are really disappointed. what they thought they wanted. many of them are just disappointed. i think that is part of the problem. there's a lack of civic education. i did not have that in high school but i am a student in history. i feel there is a strong need to get back to what the country was originally founded for. it was basically a place where you could do whatever you wanted. without the boundaries of government and the role they pled guest:. play. guest: it is not entirely unusual for you not to have a civics course. the requirements are there, sometimes this is something that gets put to the side in k-12 schools. in this country, a lot of organizations that use to recruit americans into civic and political life for on the decline. research shows that this can lead to engagement later in life. we need to sustain a hea
challenge what the governor said about his own plan? obama: well, for 18 months he's been running on this tax plan, and now, five weeks before the election, he's saying his big, bold idea is never mind. and the fact is if you are lowering the rates the way you describe, governor, then it is not possible to come up with enough deductions and loopholes that only effect high income individuals to avoid either raising the deficit or burdening the middle class. it's, it's math. it's arithmetic. now, governor romney and i do share a deep interest in encouraging small business growth. so at the same time that my tax plan has already lowered taxes for 98% of families, i also lowered taxes for small businesses 18 times. and what i want to do is continue the tax rates, the tax cuts that we put into place for small businesses and families. but i have said that for incomes over $250,000 a year that we should go back to the rates that we had when bill clinton was president, when we created 23 million new jobs, went from deficit to surplus and created a whole lot of millionaires to boot. and th
until now, there there was an open question would he ever get better, the rally last week, wow. >> rose: you have been in the line of fire in a courtroom arguing for somebody's life, life and death questions. what is it that governor romney did first? and president obama didn't do in the content -- in the context of trying to have people believe in you, accept what you are saying, and feel your passion? >> i think governor romney did something which i think is very critical and we haven't touched upon yes yet. he brought passion to his debate and passion is important when you are looking to imfrom es 40, 50 million people. the president of the united states, who i always thought was one of the most brilliant communicate tors of at least my generation .. left his a game in the locker room and i think this sort of reminded me of the really smart guy who shows up for the big final exam only to, decide i didn't study enough and suddenly i am in the middle of a fight i didn't expect and sort of rbling here and i am not making my point, and the more you do that, the deeper you get, the more
, it will be seen as the first step for the obama team to get its footing back. in the world we live in now, where everything is analyzed instantaneously, even before it happens, i think it is a meaningful event next week. >> it is important until the next presidential debate and then it becomes fairly irrelevant. >> it is important until it is over. >> they should have a disclaimer -- this debate is for entertainment purposes only. >> chicago is saying, thank god we have biden to pick us up after last night. [laughter] >> if first impressions are the most important and if the average american really tuned in for the first time, would that suggest that the next two presidential debates are less important? what is your opinion on how much the second and third presidential debates can matter? >> i think they are still very significant. it seems like ancient history now, but reagan's first debate against mondale did not go well and he turned it around in the second debate. what everybody wanted to happen, in terms of the voters, they wanted to reelect reagan because things were going well. they breat
the end of its labor struggles. the ceo telling workers, it's been a challenging couple of weeks. an understatement, george. >> boy, it sure is. thanks, jim. >>> it's "your voice, your vote." just hours from the first crucial debate. more than 50,000 people expected to watch tonight. president obama and mitt romney understand going the last of the preparations. and let's begin with jake tapper. the latest stab at setting tonight's agenda. the resurfacing of a speech president obama gave in 2007. >> reporter: good morning, george. five years ago, the remarks that then senator obama gave were covered. but not the sections when he ad lib ed. conserves are calling it explosive. the obama campaign is calling it a desperate attempt to change the subject. speaking to the largely african-american hampton university ministers conference in june 2007, then-senator obama went off his prepared remarks. >> this really steams me up. >> reporter: using a different speaking style than usual. obama charged new orleans, post hurricane katrina, was supposed to get disaster funds from the stafford f
performance tonight? >> i think what we saw was the birth of an issue that, with five weeks to go in the campaign, is going to make its appearance, but a big appearance. they debated about this unnamed board of 15 people concerning health care. it actually has a name. it's in obama care, it's the independent payments advisory board. i predict we're going to hear a lot about that in the remaining weeks and that the american people are going to not like what they hear about it. the authority it will exercise unchecked by congress to effectively ration health care. there are arguments for it and against it. but it's going to be debated and it's going to, i suspect, i know political prophesy, i'm committing it, i think it's going to be a remaining part. >> we love it when you commit it, george, and thank you. on one point, both campaigns run, they didn't want their candidates to come in angry or contentious, particularly and they didn't seem rattled. they did seem gracious to each other and i said we would get back to this, the big winner of all, maybe, big bird. there is now a facebo
think in this case, barak obama suffered from his own hubrus. he strolled in thinking he could phone it in. it reminded me several weeks ago we had national empty chair day. it looked like national empty podium day there yesterday for him. rather unfortunate. i think he's not going to take it for granted the next time. >> brian: what i saw interesting, for example, when you hear the president talk about tax breaks fort oil companies and for the rich and the corporate jet owners, as if they're the problem, i thought it was very interesting and a calculated way, mitt romney was able to spell out why they are not the problem and take the corporate oil -- excuse me, take the oil company tax breaks, put it in perspective and compare it to the green energy. a lot of people who do this for a living and hoping not to be vilified, which they were for the last 3 1/2 years, must have felt pretty good. >> yeah. romney was incredibly effective. he looked competent. he sounded confident. he was engaged. he was everything that barak obama was not. i think it was a reminder to people of just how di
not enough photo i.d.s could be issued in the last few weeks before the election, so he didn't want it it to happen in that time frame. supporters say it shows a double standard. >> obama had a rally and you had to have a photo i.d. to go to his rally. if it's good enough for his rally, why is it not good enough for voting? >> martha: interesting point. the voter i.d. law will go into effect, they say, but not until next year. >>> could there be trouble in par are dice for president obama and his one-time buddy, ben affleck. he had high hopes for president obama in 2008. but now affleck admits his feeling for the president are complicated. the actor blamed the president's record for his change of heart. >> brian: he wants him to be more liberal. so does matt damon. that's why he's disappointed. there you go. 12 minutes after the hour. next up, a u.s. border patrol agent shot and killed in the line of duty. so is the federal government failing to give our agents proper protection? we'll report. you decide. >> steve: and did you know having the government in your home for dinner? why

's going to be less than that. i've been blogging and interviewing him for weeks and weeks to tell me and he drops that bomb before this local guy. >> he's getting so pressure to come out with specifics here. >> he's got to give specifics on loopholes and spending. but president obama has to give specifics too. we don't know where he's going in a second term. because he's never said. >> exactly. and he's not getting the pressure the way romney is. larry, we'll talk to you during the show. you're going to be here watching this debate and analyzing it. joining us now is ron paul. representative paul is a staunch critic of the fed. certainly fed jim bernanke and a big hawk about our deficit. good to have you on the program. >> thank you, maria. good to be with you. >> what are you expecting? do you think governor romney comes out swinging right off the bat? what do you think he is going to be pressured and asked about in terms of specifics on his economic plan? >> overall i don't expect a whole lot of specifics from either one. in the last several weeks the whole of the discussion has be
senior romney advisors this past week. one advisor said to me there are three things, three kinds of people we need to talk to, three ds he calls it, the dissatisfied, disem pointed and disenchanted with barack obama, number one. and that what mitt romney has to do is convince people that four years from now a mitt romney presidency will be better for their personal lives. they understand on the likability question of which the president beats mitt romney so handily, they're not about to convince all these people suddenly to turn around and say, oh, we like mitt romney more than we like president obama. what they're going to try and do is say you like him enough and he can do the job and he's better able to fix things. so he's not going to try and be bill clinton here, i feel your pain. but what he's going to try to do is say i'm focused on your concerns. >> can a debate like tonight's debate really change the direction of this campaign? >> i think it can accelerate or decrease momentum one way or another. and i went back and looked at 2004 for example when you had john kerry and
's super pac will reportedly spend $11 million over the next week to broadcast this ad in eight swing >> this is what president obama said the jobless rate would be if we pass the stimulus. 5.6%. but this is what the jobless rate actually is. 8.1%. the difference? about 3.7 million jobs. >> eliot: the obama campaign has a new ad of its own attacking romney's record on outsourcing at bain capital. >> a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment. even knowing that the firm promoted its practice of exploiting low-wage labor to its investors. >> eliot: with me tonight here in denver to discuss the topic that should dominate the first half of wednesday's debate, the economy, the former chairman of the colorado republican party g.o.p. strategist dick wadhams and david shuster. thank you for joining us. you are in hostile territory tonight. i appreciate you coming into the cros
. president obama hit him with a good line on that. >> obama: for 18 months he has been run on this tax plan, and now five weeks before the election he's saying that his big bold idea is "never mind." >> cenk: well, that's a good line because in fact romney went in and said, what me? i didn't do that. that was nonsense. now on the issue of medicare and cuts to senior citizens here's what romney said. >> romney: neither the president nor i are proposing any changes for any current retirees or near retirees either to social security or medicare. so if you're 60 or around 60 or older, you don't need to listen any further. >> cenk: here's my favorite line from president obama in response to that. >> obama: your 54, 55, you might want to listen because this will effect you. >> cenk: in other words, yeah, when he says, hey senior citizens hey i'm not going to screw you. he's saying 50 and 54-year-olds, i'm going to screw you instead. the fact that the president pointed that out i thought he did a good job responding on medicare. to bring in the discussion on this, joel joe williams, political repo
